Turning a vintage curtain into a frock, Simplicity 6220

I have been working my way through some unfinished projects over winter, and this is one project I have finished, and am very happy with. I picked up this lovely vintage curtain, in excellent condition early on in my vintage style sewing days.

I love the body in the fabric and decided that it would be challenge to sew up a dress from it. I used the original lining from the drop to line the bodice, but needed more to line the skirt, so used some polyester from my stash.

I’m so glad I completed it! Do you have projects that sit for a while? Sometimes I have some challenges that I cannot overcome, or I just get a bit bored, or, ahem, distracted by some new exciting idea.

I have more photos on my blog, I¬†accessorize¬†with some vintage gloves, my nana’s hat, vintage faux pearls.
